NeoJubei has posted a plethora of screenshots with details of seven low-key games that will be available for download via the PS3 network. The titles include Blast Factor, Flow, Go Sudoku, Lemmings 2, Gripshift, Crash Carnage Chaos, Wheel of Fortune, and the swanky Swizzleblocks which I know I'll embarrass myself by calling it Sizzlechest at some point. The theme of this lineup is unofficially "mashup" as (as one GAFer put it, they remind R-Kelly of something... Trigonometry Wars? PSP games? Snood + Luminies?) but all in all they at least look as good as Xbox Live Arcade did a year ago.
Judging from previews alone, my pick of the litter is Jenova Chen's Flow. "The idea is that you start out near the surface of the water, and you eat stuff to grow and evolve. Eat something with a red dot, and your creature dives to a deeper (darker) level, eat something with a blue dot and you swim to a level closer to the surface (which is lighter)." The video above shows the game in motion which looks like a visual mashup between Electroplankton and Snake. You can play the Flash version of the game on his web site while you save your $600 beans. Watch one more PS3 video after the jump. These materials were meant to be released at the Gamer's Day event taking place on Thursday in San Francisco.
